Apostle Johnson Suleman, the Founder and General overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide, has been challenged on his claim that he could heal coronavirus patients.
It was earlier reported that the cleric said that the federal government should permit pastors like him to go to isolation centres and heal patients from Covid-19.
In reaction to what the man of God said, the Advocacy for Alleged Witches (AFAW) said that if the pastor could do so, they would give $1000 (N390,000) for every patient that he heals.
The group called out the pastor in a statement published on Tuesday, April 28, on Sahara Reporters. They said in performing the healing miracle, he must do so under “an agreed medical and scientific conditions”.
According to the statement, the call of challenge must not go unanswered as the group also recalled that Suleman said God is bigger than coronavirus.
The group, therefore, said that if that is the case, then the pastor must make sure he heals up to 15 people battling with the virus.
“I ask Suleman to heal a person with a confirmed case of COVID-19 and get a thousand US dollars. This challenge has become necessary because Apostle Suleman has in a recent video, urged the government of Nigeria to allow him and other pastors with the gift of healing into the isolation centers so that they could pray and heal those who have been infected by the deadly disease.
“This request should not go unattended. Suleman specifically said that the gifted pastors could heal 18 out of 20 COVID-19 patients. This is a reasonable number…,” Leo Igwe, the head of the group said.
Meanwhile, it was earlier reported that Nigerians stranded in the United Kingdom expressed great frustration over how their evacuation is being impeded by the federal government.
The Nigerians said that the government does not have the right to keep its citizens out of the country for whatever reason.
In a statement released on Sunday, April 26, by Olajoke Adesipe, a representative of the Nigerians, most of them are negative for coronavirus.
The Nigerians, therefore, begged Geoffrey Onyeama, the minister of foreign affairs, to urgently come to rescue them.
“The action of the Federal Government shutting its airports against Nigerians in overseas is contrary to section14 (2) (b) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” they said.
